Homemade Sweet Chilli Thai Sauce
Sweet chili sauce is essential at my house parties, as a perfect accompaniment to almost anything from a cracker to pakora, be it Indian, or continental.
I had been buying a store bought one for years. As I am constantly trying to make my own sauces and spices, I plunged into making my own version. This way I could control the sweetness, and avoid preservative laden products.
This recipe gives a jar of sauce that can be kept refrigerated for as long as you wish. No need to add any preservatives, as sugar itself acts as a preservative.
Best thing is this works for multipurpose, like a dip, like a stir fry for my honey chilli veggies, or just like that as it is finger licking good.
An essential for a party, try it today, and share how you like it.
